Please drop by #bugday and help us get our bug numbers down; we need your help! First timers and experienced triagers welcome.

Due to timing restrictions, we only have one official session, from 12pm to 2pm PDT, to assist anyone who wants to contribute. (My nick is "nth10sd") Several experienced folks will be there to assist as well.
